Hello World from the lab!

Part spider - part lab monkey, will do science for cash, strawberries, or for a place to be that's out of the rain (but preferably for cash).

The rest of what I get up to goes into the Tunnel of Goats :)

Urgent Science Stuff:

Please help reform English libel law
Current UK libel laws are very bad for science and free speech.

Cool science stuff:

RCSB Protein data bank: Molecule of the Month in alphabetical order

The PCR Song It's the little things that keep you going...

NCBI's Entrez Gene My favourite starting point for finding out what is known about any gene of interest.

NCBI's PubMed Where to go to find pretty much all research published in the last 30 years or so (may go back a lot further now). All newly published research is quickly added to the site.

The Genetic Code - table of the DNA/RNA triplet codes for amino acids. This is how DNA codes for protein.

Another PCR song Disco frenzy :)

A little late perhaps but these did look so pretty as I was cloning this morning (well, trying to get a particularly obstinate bit of DNA to amplify so that I can then clone it into bugs) :)

Very pretty! Here's hoping you conquer the obstinate DNA.

It made the prettiest gel I'd seen in a long while but sadly the DNA did not behave this time. I suspect the sequence is just too awkward as I have it at the moment and will probably have to rethink how to capture this tricky bit, but I have a few more tricks to try...
